Baramulla, Mar 7: Former minister and Member AICC Abdul Gani Vakil on Wednesday said Congress cannot remain silent on the issue of corruption.
“Government should leave no stone unturned to eradicate the menace of corruption from the state so that common man gets justice. If corruption is wiped out from the system it will be the biggest achievement of the present government headed by Omar Abdullah,” Vakil said while addressing a party convocation here in north Kashmir.
He said Chief Minister has taken some serious steps to eradicate the corruption but lot still needs to be done. “Corruption is the main factor which is responsible for people distancing themselves from the mainstream,” Vakil added.
He appealed all “nationalist and patriotic forces” to unite and support the government to eradicate corruption. "My fight is not against any individual but it is against corruption,” he added.
He asked the Chief Minister to fulfill his commitment of absorbing 50,000 youth in different departments.
Referring to Kashmir issue, Vakil said, ''No single party is in a position to resolve this vexed imbroglio at an individual level and everybody has to understand that Kashmir issue can only be resolved when all the parties including separatists sit together.”
Vakil said dialogue is the only platform to move ahead to resolve all issues relating to Jammu and Kashmir amicably and in accordance with the aspirations of the people. “If any party alone tries to make the people believe that they can resolve the Kashmir issue then, it is only befooling them,'' he added.
